Evolution of Security: Embracing Edge, AI and CollaborationFastly Technology Vice President Sean Leach Discusses Emerging Security Strategies
To rethink security strategies, enterprises should tap into edge computing, adopt technologies such as generative AI and ensure "secure by default" practices, said Fastly Vice President Sean Leach. He discussed the evolving risk landscape and third-party providers' role in managing security.
The risk landscape is evolving, and that means security practices need to be adaptable to ever-changing threats. One emerging tool that can help is artificial intelligence, Leach said.
"Although AI is far from magic, it can help in toil reduction," he said. "For a security operations center, AI can do a lot to help take the load off of their plate. For example, AI can process bug bounty reports and generate detection and blocking rules and make them templated."
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at Infosecurity Europe, Leach also discussed:
- Edge vs. traditional cloud security strategies;
- The shifting risk landscape;
- Collaboration between security and development teams.
Leach has over 20 years of experience in building and scaling large-scale security technology and products. Prior to Fastly, he led internet infrastructure services at UltraDNS, Neustar and Verisign.
